Lights around Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida bathe space shuttle Discovery after rollback of the rotating service structure. The rotating structure provides protected access to the shuttle for changeout and servicing of payloads at the pad. The rollback is in preparation for Discovery's liftoff on the STS-119 mission with a crew of seven. The mission is the 28th to the International Space Station and the 125th space shuttle flight. Discovery will deliver the final pair...

Xenon lights over Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida compete with the lightning strike seen to the left. Space shuttle Discovery is on the pad waiting for a scheduled liftoff on the STS-128 mission. Launch was scrubbed due to the weather conditions that violated the limitations for liftoff. Discovery's 13-day mission will deliver more than 7 tons of supplies, science racks and equipment, as well as additional environmental hardware to sustain six crew members on the...

Rollout of space shuttle Discovery is slow-going due to the onset of lightning in the area of Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. First motion of the shuttle out of the Vehicle Assembly Building was at 2:07 a.m. Aug. 4. Discovery's 13-day STS-128 mission will deliver a new crew member and 33,000 pounds of equipment to the International Space Station. The equipment includes science and storage racks, a freezer to store research samples, a new sleeping compartment and the...

Astronaut John H. Glenn sits in a car in front of the east side of the Mercury Mission Control building. Glenn was the pilot for the Mercury-Atlas 6 mission aboard Friendship 7, which launched Feb. 20, 1962. The building originally was built between 1956 and 1958, and was known simply as Receiver Building 3. Designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it included a large roof for telemetry equipment and a data processing area. Image credit: NASA/Astronaut Hall of Fame

The afternoon sun casts shadows on space shuttle Endeavour's external fuel tank as workers remove the seal from the Ground Umbilical Carrier Plate, or GUCP, on the tank. A hydrogen leak at the location during tanking for the STS-127 mission caused the launch attempts to be scrubbed on June 13 and June 17. The plate will be examined to determine the cause of the hydrogen leak. Then it will be repaired. June 24, 2009 Photo credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller

The facility served as mission control during all the Project Mercury missions, as well as the first three flights of the Gemini Program. The center housed the flight controllers whose duty was to take over flight control after liftoff and follow it through until splashdown. Additionally, it supported vehicle checkout, spacecraft tracking, and astronaut training. With Gemini IV, mission control moved to Houston, and the facility took on the roles of launch control and tracking station.

NASA's Mercury Mission Control Center in Florida played a key role in the United States' early spaceflight program. Located at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the original part of the building was constructed between 1956 and 1958, with additions in 1959 and 1963. The facility officially was transferred to NASA on Dec. 26, 1963, and demolished in spring 2010. This gallery pays tribute to its storied past.

Perched atop the mobile launcher platform, space shuttle Atlantis rolls into the predawn darkness as it begins its 3.4-mile trek from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A. First motion was at 6:38 a.m. EDT on Oct. 14. Atlantis is being prepared for its STS-129 mission to the International Space Station. Image credit: NASA/Jack Pfaller Oct. 14, 2009

Dawn breaks over Launch Complex 41 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to find NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory awaiting launch atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket. This will be the 100th launch of a commercial Atlas/Centaur rocket. The observatory, known as SDO, is the first mission in NASA's Living With a Star Program and is designed to study the causes of solar variability and its impacts on Earth.

The Florida East Coast Railway train arrives at the Jay Jay Rail Yard with the booster segments for the Ares I-X test rocket for interchange with the NASA Railroad (left). The four reusable motor segments and the nozzle exit cone, manufactured by the Ares I first-stage prime contractor Alliant Techsystems Inc., or ATK, departed Utah March 12 on the seven-day, cross-country trip to Florida. The segments will be delivered to the Rotation, Processing and Surge Facility for final processing and...

Between 1962 and 1963, the facility was modified to handle the additional complexities of the Gemini Program. In 1962, Pan American World Airways Inc. was contracted to design an addition to the facility, which wrapped around the east, north, and most of the west and south sides. This addition included areas for flight control briefing, data analysis, and a large space for a new Gemini spacecraft trainerJune 4, 1963

Outside Mercury Mission Control, (from left) astronauts John Glenn and Alan Shepard seem to check the weather as they gather with Flight Operations Director Walt Williams and a program meteorologist. With the advent of Project Mercury and the development of the worldwide tracking network, two small additions were made to Receiver Building 3 in 1959 and the facility became known as the Mercury Control Center. One of the additions, built along the original north elevation, became the flight...
